Front Street, Feb. JpA-Tha principal
vents in the Portland -wholesale . mar
kets today were: !
Hogs are higher. ,.,", ' j
Veal, not oo firm.
Egrgs are tumbling-. r
Beef Is. advanced. .
Onions are higher. ,
No movement in wheat. ;.;--"
- ' Poultry sells at top. , , "

Speculators, buy potatoes. '

The staallness . of receipts o block
hogs has caused an advance, of aBout
-cent Jn fluoUtlons.1 Thera Is about
enough of tha heavier grades coming
to supply the demand, and prices In that
, line are not showing any changes.
. Teal Hot so Tina.
The heavier' receipts of veal during
the past few days has- had a bad effect
on the market; and although there wera
no changes in prices today the market
is weaker and has a downward tendency.
f'T't '? Kattom Xs Xifker. ;
There is an cellent' -demand now
0 ruling for mutton, and prices today show
-'an advance of about -cent a pound.
For some time there waa no demand for
mutton at all. and the arrivals could
barely be sold at any figure. : , i
, ... Beef la Also -Up. .'..1 V
Along with the other grades of fresh
: meats the prices on beef are showing
, a slight advance on account of the
Jarger demand and the smaller receipts.
The price of beef has been so low that
, stockmen did not make their usual stalp
, merits Into this market ' - r
:- onions Are Higher. '
The onion market is.full of excite,-
ment -and rumors of very high prices
? are frequently heard along Front street.
As hia-h ah t2.20 and 18.25 have been
paid out In the country, and ltnow looks
as if the prices will not stop their up-
ward movement until they reach the
8-cen mark. "Talk of the high prices
on wheat in Chicago," says an onion
man. "I would rather have 10,000 Sacks
of onions on speculation at this time
than that many bushels or wneat.
Speculating In Potatoes.
" Fancy prices are being paid for po.
tatoes by some of the local speculators,
but as far as the market is concerned
it is no higher The quotations in San
Francisco will nrobably do a little bet
ter than they have on account of the
failure of the usual steamer to leave
...here during the past wee.
Poultry Strong at Top.
The ouatalions on poultry are- strong
at the top, -and even better than these
re obtained . for some goods. 1 n ar
-Vlvals of dressed poultry late, yester
day afternoon and this morning Vera
quite good, but a very strong demand
!cleand them up as soon as they reached
he street. ' Prices are ranging - higher,
f Very -Uw -sales of eggs were made
long Front street today, the extra heavy
receipts causing the retailers to with
' hold their offers In the expectation of
'; lower figurea.v Some sales were made,
however, as low as 25 cents early in
; the day, and later on most of the trans
actions were at that figure. .
Ho Movement la Wheat.
Thr 1 ahahlutelv nothina doing In
the Portland wheat market the millers
being anxious to buy at present prices
'but. farmers are now determined to get
thn hnnpfit of soma of the advances In
the eastern markets and . are holding
until something is done in this market.
Portland wheat quotations have shown
no change since tne recent npwara mov
nn in .tha ar hut a chance, ia ex
pected Monday. The flour market re-
tha utrnni (one of the wheat mar
ket and, like that commodity, show no
change Jn quotations.

the conditions dislodged so few long stock.

other European exchanges are reported In a

favorable. Tier la enough abort aelllng to
make a better market in caae the news from
abroad Improves, but without that we do not
see how it caa keep going lower.
Dick Bros.. New -York: The market has
shown Increased activity today and has been
peesntentiy sold. B&ort covering afforded the
market some support, but the general tone waa
tieavy and practically everything lost ground.
The situation abroad waa xery unfavorable. The
bank statement-was In every way better than
expected, showing a reduction in loana and In
creased reserves, but It did uot help atocks
ar.y. Short covering gave the close an ap

In wheat It was another active mar
ket, with prices at th close from 2 to
cents higher. The foreign markets
were again sharply up. There was dur
ing the first- hour or so enough scat
tered .profit-taking to hold the market
about steady, hut-later, on the sensa
tlohaLcharacter of the 'political news, it
advanced sharply. It did not hold all
the advance. . The market has had
big advance and there is a large scat
tered long Interest who will make lt
vulnerable to. anything In the way of
news that la unfavorable to prices. At
the same time the awakening of inter
est in the European markets on account
of tha war and the curtailment of Rus
sian shipments has tended to place the
market In an artificial position hereto
fore, although prices hers ate still, in
the main, out of line for business to the
Other side. ,
V Cora Closed t vent up.
The corn market closed 4 cent
higher. Its action was the same as in
wheat and from about the same causes.
It was steady early, advanced sharply
on the war news, but did not hold all
the advance. The Influences at work are
purely speculative and there Is the same
large outside Interest on the long side
of corn that there Ts In wheat 80 far
as the cash situation Is concerned lt Is
largely disregarded. The market la sub
ject to sharp reactions In case the po
litical news favors it
Oats Sentiment Bullish.
Oats sentiment Is bullish for the time
being on the war 'news. We are in
clined to think the Fatten interest is
well out.; There Is, we think, a good
deal of bear sentiment among local
traders and more or less short Belling of
oats on the theory that the new 'crop
and prices will make a large acreage
under normal conditions. War news,
however, dominates the market for the
Snorts Are Covering.
The covering of local shorts and buy
ing general outside trade were again the
features of the provision market. In
act there is little els? to be said about
lt. j There , is, of course, some scattered
short interest, but we are Inclined to
think it is moderate. Packers are very
bearish, selling against their products
and the general long interest Is very
large throughout the country through
commission houses. The force of this
latter buying may carry prices hlghe:
and we are Inclined to think lt is a good
ining to take profits.
